Eoghan Murphy TD, Minister for Housing, Planning & Local Government; Paschal Donohoe TD, Minister for Finance, Public Expenditure & Reform; and Lord Mayor of Dublin, Nial Ring have turned the sod for the development of the first phase in the Regeneration of  O’Devaney Gardens in Dublin.  The first phase will deliver 56 social homes with a budget of more than €20 million.  The overall re-development will deliver approximately 600 homes, with a mix of tenures, social, affordable and private homes.

Under Rebuilding Ireland, the Regeneration of O’Devaney Gardens is a Pathfinder project, showcasing the provision of large scale, mixed tenure housing in an inner city setting. It is one of three development sites that Dublin City Council owns and offers the combined potential to provide over 1,600 homes. These sites offer the opportunity to create three new, high quality urban quarters. The other two sites are at St Michael’s Estate in Inchicore and at Oscar Traynor Road in Coolock.

The strategic location of this site within the city (close to the amenities of the Phoenix Park, Heuston Station and the city centre itself) and the potential that exists for greater synergies to Stoneybatter and Grangegorman will be promoted in the development. It will be a high quality residential quarter comprising quality new homes supported by a complimentary range of mixed commercial, community and recreational facilities.

Minister Murphy said: “I am delighted to turn the first sod on these new homes for tenants of Dublin City Council. It is also a good day for the regeneration of this area. Regeneration goes beyond mere bricks and mortar and in order to be successful and sustainable in the long term, requires the re-building of a community and a strengthening of community bonds. These new social homes will be built to the latest standards and the highest quality and I’m sure the tenants will be delighted with them when they are finished. Arrangements are well in train to complete the development of the remainder of the site.”

Minister for Finance, Public Expenditure and Reform, Paschal Donohoe TD said: “This Pathfinder Project, adjacent to both Luas lines and other transport links, has the potential to be a model for sustainable communities, with mixed tenure accommodation, co-located with educational, social and cultural amenities. The regeneration of O’Devaney Gardens will provide much needed social and affordable homes in a thriving quarter of the nation’s capital.”
